WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- - Facing a crowd of supporters on Tuesday night inside a packed E.R. Bradley's Restaurant, sheriff Ric Bradshaw found out he would serve as the head of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for four more years.
Bradshaw captured more than 75% of the vote during the primary election, meaning he will not have to campaign or run in November.
His challengers, Joe Talley and Cleamond Lee Walker, failed to capture enough of the votes to challenge Bradshaw.
Bradshaw said he looks forward to putting campaigning behind him and looks forward to working on the tasks at hand during his third term.
"It's not going to be much different as far as how we do things because we got a good pattern going on how we fight gangs, how we fight the pill mills our homeland security," said Bradshaw.
Attempts to contact both Talley and Walker by phone and email were not returned.
